It’s for literally any body and everyone is so supportive on and off track. – Han #13

We consider Wakey Wheeled Cats to be a diverse, social and happy team. We are open to anyone who wants to join no matter what race, nationality, or sexual orientation and we have no upper age limit (although you must be over 18 to join).

Wakey Wheeled Cats is a women’s* team; we follow The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) Statement about Gender.

Anyone over the age of 18 can also join as a referee (on skates) or a non-skating official (NSO).

It’s a time in the week where you can forget about any stress or challenges and channel your energy into a fun and supportive sport – Holly Pocket #127

As a quad-skate league, we adhere to the rules and guidelines given by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) and each skater within the league will be required to become flat-track assessed and certified.

* Our definition of women includes transgender women and non-binary genders.
